Happy Fifth Blogiversary to the Scottish Emigration Blog

Blog, Anniversary, Blogiversary, Celebration, Top Posts
This past week, on 11 June, The Scottish Emigration Blog turned five. Thank you all for sticking with me, especially through years three and four.

According to Blogger, the most popular posts of the past five years have been:

  1. Donald Whyte and A Dictionary of Scottish Emigrants (2011)
  2. Immigrant Ancestor's Project from Brigham Young University (2011)
  3. Who were the British Convicts sent to America, 1718-1775 (2012)
  4. Ainmean-Àite na h-Alba (AÀA) ~ Gaelic Place-Names of Scotland (2011)
  5. Behind The Scenes: Corrupted Files and the Importance of Backup Files (2013)
  6. Olympics Fun: NBC Reporter Takes Field Trip to Glasgow (2012)
  7. EmigranThursday - William Dodds and Mary Hunter Dodds (2011)
  8. Does Scotland Care about the Diaspora? (2011)
  9. Gaelic Everywhere You Look (2015)
  10. Scots in Medieval England (2015)

In addition to posting more regularly, I have done a few new things with the blog. I've started using Canva and Picmonkey, two online photo editing and design sites. I learned how to use them for work and saw no reason why I couldn't use them on the blog as well. I've have also begun finding (free) photographs at morgueFile and freeimages. All four sites are easy to use and if you need images or help designing a Facebook header or a similar item, you might try them. And finally, the SEB is on Pinterest.

I can't wait to see what happens in year six!
